An independent, elegant breed that dotes on human company and family life yet will escape given the first opportunity!
Good with children reserved with strangers, the Saluki bonds closely with the family and therefore are difficult to rehome. Intelligent, sensitive, clean dogs. Hunting instinct is strong.
The Breed Standard stipulates dogs at 58-71cm, bitches proportionately smaller.
Generally healthy with few breed-specific problems.
Saluki Special Care
A big fence is needed - these are escape artists. Also be very careful off the lead - the urge to hunt may be more than the urge to come to you
